  1. One solution. if your talking about discriminant

    posted by Rose
  2. Sorry! its no real solution. because when you do discriminant i get a negative number so it would be no real solution

  3. -8x^2-8x-2=0
    or
    4x^2 + 4x + 1 = 0
    discrm = 16 - 4(4)(1) = 0
    thus there is one solution.

    check:
    4x^2 + 4x + 1 = 0
    (2x + 1)^2 = 0
    2x+1 = 0
    x = -1/2
